Defra does not hold data on the frequency or road sweeping by local authorities in England, or on the number of street litter bins maintained by local authorities.

Local councils are responsible for keeping their public land clear of litter and refuse. It is up to councils to decide how best to meet this statutory duty.

Statistics on waste managed by local authorities are available online at: https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/local-authority-collected-waste-management-annual-results.
